Find the equation of a circle which passes through the point
(2, 0) and whose centre is the limit of the point of intersection of the lines 3x + 5y = 1and (2 + c)x + 5c2y = 1as c → 1.
Solving the equations
Therefore the centre of the required circle is but circle passes through (2, 0)
Hence the required equation of the circle is
